ODE supports two types of data loads, Full load and Delta load. Delta load could be used for capturing the changes to the data set happened since the previous data load. While Full load could be executed any time, it makes sense to run Delta loads on the regular schedule to catch up with differential changes.

If raw data in the Data Vault is updated on regular basis, in simple cases the downstream ETL loads could be switched to partial loads. This is only applicable if business satellite uses the subset of the raw satellite data and business satellite ETL uses only one raw satellite for rules calculation. This type of load takes care of any inserts, updates and deletes happened since the last data load execution. Note that the logic for ETL which uses multiple tables as a source is more complex than that. Also we wouldn’t recommend this approach for loading data into Links.

One source table could support both types of load by using load type input parameter of the source stored procedure.

Before you start, create access functions for the raw satellite which is a source for your business satellite, more details on it here. The following code is a sample of the ETL stored procedure for Change Data Capture (ODE CDC) load. Complex logic at the top of procedure finds the information about the last successful CDC load for both raw and business (source and target) satellites from ODE config. Don’t change it, just provide your satellite names.

CREATE PROCEDURE [stage].[usp_Customer]
--ETL procedure is only parametrised if the switch between Delta and Full loads
(@Load_Type varchar(50))

Create hub and satellite as usual. However, set parameter StageLoadType to ‘ODEcdc’ and parameter StagePassLoadTypeToProc to 1.

Now this table could be scheduled in two different loads. Let’s say we have created two schedules already:

USE [ODE_Config]
GO
EXECUTE [dv_scheduler].[dv_schedule_insert] 
   @schedule_name          = 'Full_Load'
  ,@schedule_description   = 'Runs all Loads which only need to be refreshed daily'
  ,@schedule_frequency     = 'Daily'
  ,@release_number         = 2017010901
GO
EXECUTE [dv_scheduler].[dv_schedule_insert] 
   @schedule_name          = 'Delta_Load'
  ,@schedule_description   = 'Runs all Loads which need to be refreshed hourly'
  ,@schedule_frequency     = 'Hourly'
  ,@release_number         = 2017010901
GO 

Add source table to both schedules:

EXEC	[dv_scheduler].[dv_schedule_source_table_insert]
@schedule_name = 'Full_load'
,@source_unique_name = 'Customer'
,@source_table_load_type = 'Full'
,@priority = 'Low'
,@queue = 'Agent001'
,@release_number = 2017010901
GO

EXEC	[dv_scheduler].[dv_schedule_source_table_insert]
@schedule_name = 'Delta_load'
,@source_unique_name = 'Customer'
,@source_table_load_type = 'Delta'
,@priority = 'Low'
,@queue = 'Agent001'
,@release_number = 2017010901
GO

Don’t forget to execute Full load first before the first Delta, otherwise there will be no CDC start date and load won’t be successful.
